FAPERIN, who collaborates on the Polycond project, managed by AIMPLAS, has been recognised by the EU as a sample of a collaborative project among companies, technologic institutes and associations of whole Europe.
As a proof of recognition, it has been invited to participate in the institutional event commemorating the thirtieth anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Accession of Spain to the European Community, which will be chaired by His Majesty the King Felipe VI, with the presence of the king emeritus Juan Carlos I. It will take place in the Royal Palace of Madrid.
FAPERIN is a company located in Ibi, Alicante, which works for the production of plastic parts and sets. Its staff and technical equipment have more than 30 years of experience on this sector. It has a wide experience on such demanding sectors as the automobile or the domestic appliance sectors. The participation in this sort of projects has become a regular practice within FAPERIN, since it has participated and is now participating in many of them, collaborating with the main Technological Institutes of Europe.
Thanks to the development of the POLYCOND project, together with other 17 companies and research centres, this project has resulted in a new generation of plastic materials with conductive properties and has been the spearhead for other entities to investigate in this direction.
The polymers obtained from the researches undertaken in POLYCOND have conductive properties which enable to produce, with the injection process, parts with up to a 60% less of weight than the conventional alternatives used in that moment. Moreover, this new plastic generation has improved antistatic and shielding properties thanks to the incorporation of carbon nanotubes and other conductive additives. Thus, its use in electronic equipment susceptible to interferences is of particular value. It is the case of the medical, automotive and military sector, in which it is common to use radio devices, televisions or medical surgical equipment, which generate electromagnetic fields, and therefore interferences.
